A decision in this regard was taken at a review meeting convened by Fisheries Minister Mercykutty Amma. The trawling ban would be in force from June 15 to July 31, an official release said here today.
The meeting also resolved to take a decision on the 61 day ban imposed by the Centre on trawling during the monsoon period, it said.
The minister requested the fishermen community to co-operate with the government on the trawling ban with a view to preserve and conserve ocean resources.
The relief extended to fishermen due to the ban would be distributed in June itself, the release said.
